Over the past few weeks I have been proactively searching numerous websites, blogs, etc, for anything related to religion—specifically the Christian/atheist debate. I came across a great article by Tom Flannery at WorldNet Daily called “The Irrationality of Atheism.” The article centered on a debate between two experts in their respected fields Dinesh D’Souza and Christopher Hitchens. Hitchens is the author of the atheist manifesto "God Is Not Great," while D'Souza is the author of "What's So Great About Christianity." Both books I plan to read in the near future.
I did not see the debate, but Flannery ends his blurb with:
"The evidence for God is so overwhelming that it takes far more faith to be an atheist than it does to be a Christian. That fact was demonstrated yet again in the debate between D'Souza and Hitchens, as anyone who watched it objectively would have to conclude."
So I ask the question: Does it take more faith to be an atheist?
